Windows 7 automated tweaks
Well, it's been about a year and a half, and I think I'm comfortable with the in's and out's of Windows 7.
So I've created two files to automate most of the tweaks I've previously posted on:
Optimizing Win7 for Mini 311
- The script turns off all domain and HomeGroup networking, so if you use the Mini 311 as a networked work PC, then don't use it (Note: Does *not* disable wifi/wlan or manually configured networking)
- Turns off audio enhancements
- Doesn't disable some of the more advanced stuff like CEIP, MMCSS, etc.
- Doesn't do AHCI SATA fix (too risky and complicated)
- Only makes changes to services and scheduled tasks
- You must use Administrator-elevated command prompt or Explorer to run the files
Please look at the files in notepad before running it, so you know what they do. If you've previously done the tweaking manually, there's no need to run these files.
The tweaks should be okay on any Win7 PC, as the Mini 311 specific stuff shouldn't cause a problem.
If you run this, *make sure to have a backup* just in case!!!

very nice thank you very much!
a small question is there any chance to get a version, so that networking is possible?
i think many 311ers go into wlan for surfing, or am i wrong that it is possible with this tweaks?
thx in advance
metapower, it does not affect regular WLAN/wifi use. Just domain/homegroup networking is disabled. Manually configured (advanced) networking still works as well. I'll edit the first post to clarify that.
Great Joe, it's useful after reinstalling clean WIN 7
Thx u !
I just ran it, thank you Joe, not sure exactly what it does but I guess I'll find out By the way, this is nicae9, lost old account like Pycon
As far as Tweaks, I found Windows 7 manager very useful to tweak 7, even in the trial version you can tweak many settings.
Will reinstall 7 soon as I am planning on getting a new HD once I figure out what size fits as I will start a new thread today about it.

newNICAE9, glad to see you're back.
The tweaks focus on reducing memory usage and disk activity. I did a lot of monitoring of disk activity to find ways to increase the chipset and hard drive idle time. I can't be sure how much battery life it really saves, but every bit helps.
